Repetier-Host Slic3r config

Request by my reader here is my Slic3r setting that I use with Repetier-Host

Repetier-Hosthttp://reprap.org/wiki/Repetier-Host

This is what I used to print this:

Layer And Perimeters:

last but not least my Extruder setting, this you need to probably fine tune to your printer

MendelMax 1.5 Calibration Part 2 + extra

Here is my final print,

10% infill 0.3 layer

100mm/s retract speed

3mm retract lenght

couldt be more happy with the result  :cayo:

In addition to that I added a servo for auto bed leveling :) work quite nice I must say but problem is the servo is to far out to the front, I will need to print a new x-carriage so I can put the servo to the side so it can cover a lot more bed surface

20140530_225313everything wrap up nicely now no more messy cable dangling around

20140530_225116 20140530_224953printer still need some calibration, initial Slic3r setting seem close enough printing 20×20 cube yield 20.x result which is acceptable for me

20140530_225538

here few thing that I have printed after the calibration,

attached nicely to the printer :)

Some Keychain made using thinkercad which have my HAM callsign 9W2DLR :)20140529_155906

XT60 battery cap, this was actually my first print and get me realize that my Y axis are inverted :p20140529_000359

 

Overall it a fun build and straight forward, I still waiting for my LCD controller so I don’t need to have my laptop connected to the RAMPS when printing which is sometime will take 12 hours! :)

I tried to print Zam Kossel part but 20 minutes before completion whole house when blackout! the print almost take 5 hours but failed at the end but I think I can still use the part

20140530_225047more to come, hopefully can do some video showing the printer printing :)

Stay tuned

Another update of my Mendelmax Build, Part 1 can be found here Mendelmax 1.5 3D Printer BuildLog Part 1

Originally the extruder drive is installed like this but I don’t like to see the cable poking like that, What I did was I just rotated it 90 degree problem solve :D

20140527_191621

after rotated

20140527_191854

next is fixing the loose hotend, Mr, Bayer suggested to put a M8 washer between the hotend/extruder but unfortunately the  M8 washer a slightly bigger than the hole of the hotend, but lucky enough if you an RC and have these at your disposal

20140527_190856

I taken the motor mount from the small brushless motor, take my dremel and grind it flat! presto you have a perfect fit washer which solve my loose hotend problem :)

20140527_190630

nice fit in the extruder

20140527_190648

Perfect fit!

this the fun part, software and electronics testing, I’m using repetier-host for my software for now until my LCD controller arrive, wiring still a mess as I need to test the RAMPS1.4 first before tidying up everything,

when sending my XYZ to home I just realize that my machine is backward lol! look like I have to fix that later and also need to move my spool holder to the back of the printer, plus need to re-route the extruder fans/hotend cable to the back too

Because it was late I was not able to finish software testing only manage to test my end stop are working perfectly fine, more to come stay tune!
